A Hand Sanitiser In A Quiet Corner

This corner at Moorgate station never gets any passenger traffic, but thousands pass within three or four metres or so.

So what a good place to put a hand sanitiser.

I often use these sanitisers, when I pass and wonder if they should be a permanent feature, even after COVID-19 has passed.

Would they help in the control of winter influenza?

  1. I agree they may help reduce the spread of other infections. As for the one in the picture, how much use will it get? It is natural to walk as straight a path as possible. That one is in a corner so it means changing route to use it. That goes against the generally lazy nature of humans.

    • As I was in a hurry, when I passed, I didn’t see how many used it. But I did. It does stand out due to the white tiles.

      I was told by a builder on one station project, that Transport for London use white tiles as often as they can these days, as they are the only ones that could be easy to match in the future.

      Some of the 1930s designs might have been difficult to replicate.
